Table of Contents

Introduction

Background of the BGL-Brummi-Card

The BGL-Brummi-Card Digital Transformation has led to the creation of a digital card designed to serve as proof of association with the BGL (Bundesverband Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung). This innovative solution offers direct benefits to members at various partner companies and association colleagues, revolutionizing the driver experience. Accepted by participating partners as proof of association, the card streamlines access to exclusive perks and advantages, making it a valuable asset for drivers.

Importantly, the BGL-Brummi-Card prioritizes privacy and security. It does not collect data on its usage, nor does it gather discount points. Furthermore, the card cannot be used as a means of payment, ensuring that it remains a tool focused solely on providing access to member benefits.

Understanding the BGL-Brummi-Card Ecosystem

Carrier Companies and Their Subscriptions

The BGL-Brummi-Card ecosystem relies on the collaboration between carrier companies and BGL. To participate in the program and offer the card to their drivers, carrier companies must pay a subscription fee to BGL. This subscription ensures that all involved parties have a vested interest in the program and that drivers can access the various benefits provided by the card.

By maintaining an active subscription, carrier companies enable their drivers to take advantage of the perks offered by participating partners and association colleagues. The subscription model fosters a sense of commitment among carrier companies and helps support the continued growth and development of the BGL-Brummi-Card program.

Driver Requirements and Benefits

For drivers to access the benefits offered by the BGL-Brummi-Card, they must meet certain requirements:

  1. Association with a carrier company: Drivers must be affiliated with a carrier company with an active BGL subscription and issuing them a Brummi card.
  2. Basic information: Drivers must provide their first name, last name, and photo identification to register for the card.

Once the digital card is configured, drivers can present it to any BGL associate or participating partner to receive the benefits. These benefits may include discounts, special offers, or other perks that enhance the overall driver experience. By creating a more accessible and user-friendly system, the digital BGL-Brummi-Card aims to make it easier for drivers to take advantage of the benefits available to them.
